It should be listed in the owner's manual. My Ford Shop Service Manual, Revised August 2014 says that it should have at least 760 CCA (Cold Cranking Amps.) and 950 CA (Cranking Amps.) The CCA is a very important battery performance indicator. It’s based on how well a new battery will supply sufficient power for 30 seconds, at zero degrees Fahrenheit.


If cost isn't an issue get a sealed gel cell battery, and you can tell corrosion bye bye, and they usually last longer than conventional lead acid batteries. But they are expensive.
